Organised by Anne Arkle and Ray Blakemore, of Jaspersparkle silver spoon rings, black bunting will be displayed across all 12 gazebos as a mark of respect to Queen Elizabeth II.

Anne and Ray will also wear black armbands.

Anne said: “The Queen’s death came as such a shock, as I’m sure it did for so many people.

“It’s just so sad as she was such a constant in our lives, steadfast and devoted to her role – I have been very emotional watching the scenes from Edinburgh, and now from London.

“I feel the loss personally; I wish that we could get down to London to pay our respects in person.

“We could not let our event on Sunday run without some visual display to honour Her Majesty and that we mourn her death, especially on the eve of her funeral.

“We thought that black armbands and bunting would show our respect to the Queen.

“Each of the businesses are true makers – nothing is bought in, all items for sale are made by the stall-holder at each stand.

“The stall fees we charge, we donate to local charities (after costs covered) – we have raised £11,500 since 2018.”
